Shipley recalled by Arizona Diamondbacks
Reno, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
Former Nevada star and current Reno Aces hurler Branden Shipley was recalled by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Shipley has made two spot starts for the D'Backs this season with an 0-1 record and 7.00 ERA (7ER in 9 innings). With Reno he is 5-3 with a 4.58 ERA in 12 starts.
Reports are that Shipley will be bolstering the Arizona bullpen, a role he is not familiar with. In a combined 108 minor and major league appearances, Shipley has only appeared out of the bullpen once, during a stint in 2015 with the Double-A Mobile BayBears.
